PREFACE 



MODERN study of living languages does not yield in thor- 
oughness to that of the classical. Yet, while the more scholarly 
Latin and Greek dictionaries used in America are quickened with 
the results of recent philological research, no dictionary of a mod- 
ern language (saving, conditionally, Whitney's German) is calcu- 
lated to satisfy the philological student in the college, much 
less in the graduate school. That there is need of a more scho- 
lastic work in this line may therefore be asserted without any 
implied disparagement whatever of various practical dictionaries, 
excellent within their own sphere. This need is especially pro- 
nounced for a language which, like the French, can be traced, in the 
main, to its source by every student of Latin, and the historical study 
of which may thus be to him both a valuable discipline and a 
practical aid. 

It is in this belief that we have endeavored to prepare a 
work embodying: 

I. A scholarly and yet thoroughly practical French- English 
dictionary, founded upon the highest modern authorities, and 
embodying a measurably complete list of modern and obsolescent 
French words with their pronunciation, derivation, and earliest 
occurrence in the language, as well as their meanings and less 
obvious uses; and 

II. An English-French dictionary serving the purposes of 
French composition and speaking, and containing a sufficient 
amount of modern and archaic words with their pronunciation, 
and etymologically arranged, to serve the French student of 
English. 

These general features of the present wbrk are more fully 
explained below. 

I. THE FRENCH-ENGLISH PART 

1* 'Authorities. The main authorities relied upon have been 
HatzfeId<Darmesteter-Thomas' "Dictionnaire gnral de la langue 
" (to; fascicule 28), and Littr<'s "Piotiortmaire <le la laague 



Vi PBBFACB 

franQaise." But various other lexical works, such as Scheler's, 
Spiers', Thibaut's, Sachs', Roubaud's (Heath's), Webster's and 
the Standard dictionaries have been used, and "Romania" and 
"Zeitschrift der romanischen Philologie" consulted for the most 
recent philological suggestions. 

2. Vocabulary. Without any claim to completeness, unattain- 
able by even far bulkier works, this dictionary nevertheless 
contains a much greater number of French words than ordinary 
school dictionaries of its size; and many of these words, recently 
become current, are wanting in most large lexical works. The 
words have not been compiled promiscuously, but selected on the 
joint authority of Hatzfeld-Darmesteter-Thomas (which bids fair 
to be the standard dictionary of France) and Littre". Very few 
words contained in the former work have been omitted, but 
several not found there are included. Numerous proper nouns of 
somewhat unfamiliar form, but of ordinary occurrence, have also 
been given in the general alphabetical list. The important dis- 
tinction between living and obsolete words has been indicated 
throughout by the use of a dagger (t) before the obsolete. 

3. Irregular forms of inflection have been noted, and where 
it seemed advisable (as for the principal parts of the simple irregular 
verbs) in alphabetical order. The full conjugation of each irregular 
verb is given either directly where the verb occurs, ot by reference. 

4. Of French idioms, all that are self -explaining have, as a 
rule, been omitted as mere chaff, hiding the grains that are sought 
It is different in the French-English part, where any idiomatic 
turn of an ordinary expression deserves notice. 

5. Pronunciation. Regarding pronunciation, this work, 
though using a wholly independent system of presenting it, has 
otherwise followed, in the main, that of Hatzfeld-Darmesteter- 
Thomas. Only an exceptional use has been made of Michaelis- 
Passy's pronouncing vocabulary, which was not published before 
our wort was nearing its completion. Fortunately the discrepancies 
between the two great authorities are not serious, and the advantage 
of following in the main one of them will be readily recognized. 

The pronunciation of each word is denoted directly, without 
special transliteration, by the aid of subscript diacritical marks 
for the less common sounds. The student knowing that all signs 
above a letter (and the cedilla) are French, and all others 
conventional, will feel at home at once. A glance at tie 



PREFACE Vll 

French words will show that they are not marred in clearness 
by this unobtrusive marking, while their pronunciation stands out 
from the more or less unphonetical spelling, forcing itself upon 
the attention of the student, who is apt to neglect phonetic respell- 
ings. To avoid such complexity and minuteness of marking as 
would necessarily defeat its own purpose, some few finer shades 
of utterance, as especially the distinction between long and semi-long 
quantity, more or less uncertain and wavering (somewhat differ- 
ently treated by the two works referred to above, and left 
undistinguished in Victor's "Fonetik"), have been omitted. The 
Key to our plan of marking the pronunciation is found at the 
end of the preface (p, xi). 

6. Derivation. The immediate .etymological derivation of 
every French word is given, as far as known, within brackets (or, 
in case of direct French derivation, indicated, where alphabeti- 
cally feasible, by their place under the source-word). When 
the derivation is unknown or questionable, this is denoted by 
an interrogation-mark, alone or before a suggested etymology. 
Hypothetical etymologies are only sparingly resorted to, because 
in a work of this kind cautious reserve is preferable to guessing. 
Besides the immediate source of the French word, a yet re- 
moter source is also denoted in parenthesis whenever this 
seems advisable in order to explain the present meaning of 
the French word, or to point out a Latin word apt to be more 
familiar to the student than the immediate source-word. This 
second word is chosen without reference to its immediate or more 
remote antecedency to the first. The meaning of the Latin word, 
whenever deviating from the French, is given. It is an ana- 
chronism to suppose every student to know Latin, and the 
etymologies are calculated for all students. For a like reason 
Greek words are transliterated. Popular Latin source-words 
postulated by philologists are, as usual in such cases, preceded 
by an asterisk. Instead of the accusative, from which the French 
nouns, etc., are ordinarily derived, the Latin nominative is given. 
This will not trouble the Latin student, while it will serve otter 
students who may wish to know, in its ordinary form, the Latin 
word from which the French is derived. Latin prototypes oi 
primitive French words (words marked ) have their long vowel 
quantities marked: the popular Latin formay again for practical 
ends, without consideration of their gradual siirrc^do^ of * long 



PKEFACEJ 

quantities, and exchange of quantitative for qualitative differences 
(A conversion easily made by the student of French phonetics). 

7. Principles of arrangement. The dictionary is entirely 
alphabetical. Kindred words following each other are grouped 
together. This for three reasons: first, as a means to furnish a 
valuable aid of association in acquiring the language, and foster 
the etymological sense; second, to avoid needless repetition of 
etymologies; third, to save space. This grouping will in nowise 
impede the ready use of the dictionary, since the words of each 
group stand out boldly, and there is a time-saving element in the 
very grouping, which provides for a rapid passing from one set of 
forms to another. 

The first word of each group is given in full; the following 
words are abbreviated as far back as practicable. The division 
is marked by a rolled hyphen (~) for the head-word of the 
group, and by an ordinary hyphen (-) for the other words. 
Besides, to aid the eye in finding the head-word within the group 
for it is not necessarily the first word, but the word under 
which the etymology is especially treated it is preceded by 
double bars (. II ) . 

In the division of words, the principles of spelling, pronun- 
ciation and space-saving have been reconciled as far as practicable, 
to the exclusion of a more etymological division, which is in- 
compatible with them, and superfluous in view of the special 
statement of etymologies everywhere. 

The words are not grouped with reference to immediate deriva- 
tion from one another, which would have necessitated very nu- 
merous groups, but simply, and as far as it has seemed advisable, 
with reference to near relationship of some kind. Hence the 
head-word of the group, though often the actual source-word 
from which the others are derived, may be simply the word 
lying, on the whole, farthest back of them all, or best suited 
for explaining the etymology of the group. Yet every word not 
directly derived from that head-word, has its immediate etymo- 
logical source indicated. The student will thus find not merely 
helpful etymological suggestions, but an historically exact etymology 
as far as known, for every French word, enabling him to use the 
dictionary for scientific purposes, if desirable. 

8. Date of occurrence. In addition to the etymology of the 
French words, their earliest occurrence in the language is also 



PBEFACE AX 

indicated. Words of popular Latin origin, brought into Gaul 
directly by the Romans (often identical with their classical 
types), are followed by a small circle; those introduced later, from 
whatever source, by an exponent number denoting the century 
of their earliest authenticated appearance in the language (e. g. 
abime = ' abime, of direct popular Latin origin'; a"bat 16 'abat, 
first known appearance in 1500-1599')* The philological value of 
this information needs no demonstration. 

9. Definitions. The definitions of the French words, though 
not exhaustive, cover all the ordinary meanings, and to a consider- 
able extent also such as are more exceptional or technical. The 
aim has been, especially for other than source-words, to give 
distinct varieties of meaning rather than mere synonyms, which 
the student may readily make out for himself. The definitions 
are arranged, as far as it has seemed practical, in the sequence of 
their historical development, and always so as to show their inter- 
relation. Such definitions as for instance Ure^ "be, belong, have,'* 
etc. found in much used school- dictionaries are bewildering 
and uninstructive to the student, especially where his grammar 
furnishes no key to them, which it does in the instance quoted. 

An attempt has frequently been made though, as not ar- 
ranged for from the beginning, with some discordance for different 
letters to indicate the true relation between French and English 
cognates or equivalents overlapping each other in meaning, by 
parenthesising after the English the meanings covered also by 
the French, thus aiding the student not only in selecting the 
appropriate rendering, but also in appreciating an interesting 
correlation (cf. abandon^ fourche, goutte^ gousset, oeil^ etc.). 

English cognates, from whatever source, when not evident at 
first sight, are in small capitals, but only once and under the 
French source-word, provided an English cognate occurs there, 
and in a form sufficiently suggestive also for derivative words, 
To denote perfect identity of form, English cognates written 
like the French are denoted simply by the sign = . 

IL THE ENGLISH-FRENCH PART 

This part of the dictionary, though more immediately based 
on previous works of a similar scope and purpose than the first, 
is arranged, however, like it, to show the etymological kigu^p of 



X PEEFACE 

the words, as well as their pronunciation. The requirements of 
pronunciation and accentual variation have at times necessitated 
a less rigorous and complete grouping of related words than in 
the first part. Except as suggested by the etymological grouping, 
and by French cognates (found for more than half of the English 
words), no etymologies have been given, as it would generally 
lead to sources unknown by the ordinary student of this part 
of the work. 

As regards pronunciation, the principle of subscript signs 
for sounds deviating from the ordinary has been followed also 
here, except for the tone-vowel, which always has a sign over 
it, this being the easiest way of denoting the shifting English 
accent. To avoid a confusing multitude of signs, the many varying 
shades of toneless vowels are marked only when distinctly deviating 
from the ordinary or neutral sound (of. further the table below), 
and the palatal n only when the following g is silent. Though 
the marking might have been more detailed here, the greater 
gain has seemed to be attained on the whole by greater simplicity; 
and it is believed that any one familiar with the rudiments of 
English pronunciation will be amply helped by the system here 
adopted. 

The work on this dictionary has been divided between its 
authors in such a way that Mr. Edgren, besides its general plan- 
ning, has prepared the letters A, D, E (part of this letter with 
the assistance of Dr. M. Osterholm), G, H> I, J, K, 0, Q, R, T, 
U, V of the French-English Part, and all of the English-French 
Part; and Mr. Burnet the letters B, C, F, L, M, N, P, S, W, X, 
Y, Z of the French-English Part. 

If, in spite of frequent conferences on all points of detail, 
some discrepancies are found in the execution, it is believed that 
they are all of minor consequence. And the authors now submit 
their work to the public in the hope that, though it have not 
attained a result adequate to their aim, nor their liberal outlay 
of time and labor, it may, however, contribute its share to both 
a practical and scholastic study of a language of the greatest 
cultural and philological interest.

PRONUNCIATION 



I. FRENCH 

As no description of linguistic sounds, however detailed, can satisfactorily 
teach to the student untrained in phonetics their reproduction, the subjoined list gives 
but the briefest hints of the approximate English equivalents of the French sounds. 
The best way of acquiring their exact utterance is to learn from a competent person 
the pronunciation of the French key-words in the list. 

1. All signs above a letter, and the cedilla ( A ), are genuine French signs, and not 
to be considered in the pronunciation, except for e, which is constantly = e, and 5, 
always = *. 

2. Other signs are conventional, to denote pronunciation. 

3. Short quantity is unmarked. Long is marked by the usual long quantity mark 
placed below its vowel (s), and above any other subscript sign (cf. 8 below). Medial 
quantity is unmarked (cf . Preface, p. vii) ; but the student may remember that a long 
thematic accent-vowel is ordinarily semi-long in a protonic syllable (rose, rose). 

4. Silent letters are in heavy italics (e.g. le$ = le, dette = dett, $rt = %, 
fllle = f |1, Slev^r = elve). 

5. French always accents the last or only fully pronounced vowel of the word 
(donnoV, &'m.e). 

6. The pronunciation of the repeated part of the first word of a group applies to 
all the words of the group, observing that long quantity belongs only to accent syl- 
lables (cf. 3). 

Observing these principles, our system of marking the French pronunciation is as 
follows : 

7. SIMPLE VOWELS (cf. 1, 3, above) 

a = open a of Eng. calf (Webster) : la, a ( 1) 

a = close a (nearly as in Eng./ar) ; . bas (4), &me (1, 4) 

a nasal a (a. with nasal resonance) : *m, danse (3) 

e = open e in Eng. met: matte, meme (1, 3) 

e or 6 = close e (approaching e in they; e of Germ. 

*ehr t but short) ; donner (4, 5), t 

(*e mute') = e in Eng. proclitic tht : IB, msner (4, 5) 

$ =3 nasal open e (e with nasal reson ince) :..... feign 

$ ts Q, above : , $ti, vgwdre (3) 

i 5= i in Eng. pique : fc il (te'Ct, 3)

u = nasal Fr. ei/. (eu, cf. below, with nasal resonance) : . un, lund 

y = Fr. i (cf. above) : . . . ' ........ y, analyse (3) 

y = nasal i (cf . above) : , , , , ....... syntaxe, njmphe (3) 

8. VOWEL- COMPOUNDS (cf. 1, 3, above) 

ai = open Pr. e (cf. above) : . . . . ...... fait, paitre (1, 3) 

an = open Pr. o (cf . above) : .......... Paul, -eentanre (3) 

au = close Fr. o (cf . above) : .......... au, aune (3) 

ay = Fr. e-y: ............... payer (p$-y$) 

ei = open Fr. e (cf . above) : .......... peine, reitre (3) 

eu = open Fr. e with rounded lips (Germ, open o; near u 

in Eng. /w): ............ seul, jeune (1, 3) 

en == Fr. eu, close (Germ, close o): ....... feu, heureusc (3) 

oi (not ol ) = Eng. wa- in wag (Fr. ou&) : ..... moi, bolre (3) 

qi = Eng. wa- in wattle (Fr. o^a) : ........ bqis, orqitre (1, 3) 

oi = Fr. oi (w|., Eng. w} : ..... ..... moiis, mo|ndre (3) 

on = Eng. oo in foot (long/ooZ) : ......... foule, epouse (3) 

= Eng. w, before vowel : .......... out 

9y = Eng. w&y- (Fr. oi'y) : .......... 

ny = Fr. ui'y- : .............. 

In other vowel-compounds, unless differently marked, each, or the extra, vowel has 
its own sound (slightly dimmed as initial): noel, 7ta-ir, a-ere ; -eM-ourme, lu-eur, 
lou-er ; ou-i. 

9. LONG VOWELS OK DIGRAPHS 

These, as already indicated ( 3, and in the examples above), are denoted by the 
sign _ placed below the vowel(s), but above the subscript sign: a, a ($), ^ j (,), 
9, 5, etc. ; ai ; eu, u, etc. 

10. CONSONANTS 

Those not given below are pronounced as in English, observing that mutes before 
a vowel are less forcible, but before another consonant more distinct than in English j 
and that d t t are more dental.

II. ANGLAIS 

B3F* Attendu qu'aucune description de sons linguistiques, quelque de'taille'e qu'elle 
soit, ne pourrait les enseigner entierement a l'<5tudiant sans connaissances phone'tiques, 
la liste ci-desscms ne donne que quelques indications approximatives de la nature des 
sons anglais. Pour les connaitre parfaitement il faudra bien apprendre les exemples 
anglais de la liste. 

1. Le son de la voyelle tonique (accentuee) est marque" au-dessus d'elle. Les 
autres signes de prononciation sont en regie places au-dessous de leur lettre (excepte" 
pour <e, th, voy. plus bas) : accumulate. 

2. Les lettres muettes sont imprimees en italiques grasses: able, fatten, 
th.6u<77t, c/tronique, 

3. Les voyelles atones non marquees se prononcent comme celles de signe court 
(a, e, etc.), quoique moins distinctement, s'approchant souvent de Ye muet en frangais 
(ainsi dans les desinences -er, -or, -ar, -on, -or ou -our). Celles qui ont un signe se 
prononcent comme les voyelles toniques du meme signe, mais moins distinctement, et en 
ge'ne'ral sans Vappendice glissant ("glide") de celles-ci. 

4. L'accent anglais, ordinairement descendant, est variable, et ne porfce que rare- 
ment sur la derniere syllabe. II est plus 6nergique que P accent frangais, obscurcissant 
ainsi plus ou moins l'e"nonciation nette des syllabes atones. 

5. La prononciation des mots repet6s n'est pas marquee, excepte pour des raisons 
specielles. 

Observant ces principes, voici notre syste"me de designer la prononciation anglaise : 

6. VOYELLES 

a (aton. a) = a de la (frangais), tirant sur e: . . . at; attain ( 1) 

a (a) = e 1 (6 glissant en i, 3) : ale, fain ; emulate (1, 2) 

a =r de la: ask, dan-ee 

4 = de bas, plus guttural : art, father ; arca'de 

a (a) = 5 angl,, tirant sur au ouvert : all; althxm07t 

a =6 anglais : iwas, quality 

a = ai de/aire; care, fair 

e (e) = e de mette (e + r = e muet) : .... met, letter 

e (e) = i d'iZe: , . . . . me, seen; c6norete 

e = a anglais : prei/, v^in 

e = a anglais : ........... there, heir 

6 () = eu de leur: Srr, earn; fertility 

ew = you: few 

i (i) s= i d'iJ, tirant sur e: it, bitter; cabin 

i (|) = &y anglais :...**...*.. mine, aisle ; idea 

i = i d'iZe; pique, mien 

J (4) = e () anglais : fir, bird ; tapir 

5 (o) =o de/o^e, tirant sur a angl.: <idd, fftlly ; oppress 

6 (o) =o de rose, glissant en ou, 3) : . . , . rose, roo-m ; poetic (3) 
6 = a angl. (ou tirant sur 6 angl.) : , , , , drb ; morta'lity 

6 = o en donne (Paris) = u angl' ; , . . . d6ne, 16ve 

<fr (o) rs ou long de blouse : . , , > . . . . m6ve, f6ol ;

oi = a'y anglais : oil 

ou, ow = au anglais : foul, owl 

u (u) =o de donne (Paris : o bref tirant sur eu) : . up, but ; submit 

qu = ku (kw) anglais: quarrel, conquest 

u. (u) = you (aprSs d, , 5, Z, presque = ou) ; . . use, pure t duke ; unite

u (u) = ou bref de/o^Ze: full, hateful 

u (u) =6 anglais : urn, overturn 

y (y) =r i (i) anglais : , . . mystic, pity 

y(y) = i(i) anglais: * . . . style; mysti% 



6. CONSONNES 

Les consonnes omises de la liste se prononcent en pratique comme en frangais. 
Observez pourtant que les plosives (k, t, p ; g, d, b) sont enonce"es avec plus d'emphase 
(d' aspiration) devant une voyelle, mais moins distinctement devant une autre consonne ; 
que les sonnantes (g, d, 6, v t z) finales sont moins sonnantes qu'en anglais ; et que d, t 
sont formes centre le palais ante"rieur. 



c = k: cart 

e = s de son: -cell 

o = ch en cher: ferocious 

oh = tch (le tout plus pa- 
latal): . chap, chest, church 
eh = sh anglais : -eharade 

g = g de garde: game 

^j = j anglais: gem, gist 

n = h, distinctem. aspir : have 

j = dj- ftadjoint (mais j 
plus uni, et plus pa- 
latal) : joke 

n = n form^ contre le pa- 
lais posterieur : . . song, 16ving 

q = k qu= fc ou : . . . pique; quest 

r, non roul, forme contre le 
palais anterieur; (apr^s
